God’s judgment of each of us will be according to truth. It will be according to our deeds. He will not show partiality to any person. And His standard of judgment will be the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
When we see problems in the church we need to be determined never to lose our faith. The future of the church is bright because difficulties can sometimes motivate us to do amazing things. It’s bright because technological advances have given us new opportunities to spread the Gospel. And it’s bright because the church belongs to God.
Elders are called upon constantly to make decisions that are matters of judgment. They need to demonstrate that they care about the souls of their congregations. They must take their responsibility seriously. They have to be unified in carrying out their decisions. And even in matters of judgment they must make their decisions based on the Scriptures.
